British singer Ms Dynamite has split from fiance DWAYNE SEAFORTH, and he has moved out of her London home.

The couple, who got engaged in 2003, are determined to remain friends and aim to share custody of their two-year-old son SHAVAAR.

Ms Dynamite, real name NIOMI McLEAN-DALEY, is on the verge of releasing her second album and hopes Seaforth will help care for Shavaar while is promoting the release.

A source says: "Niomi's father walked out when she was little so she's all to aware of how a separation might affect a child. She and Dwayne have talked the situation through and he's going to play a full and active part in raising their son."
